Weekend Wrap-Up: off and running

School's definitely back in session. There was no easing in for Sylvia; homework started the very first night. But she seems to like all her teachers; most importantly, she likes her Algebra teacher and feels comfortable enough to ask for help with her. Big change from last year!

We were also busy every night. Thankfully, my parents were able to help out for the night I had to be in two places at one time. Sylvia had rehearsals most nights, plus we had the first PTA meeting of the year, plus Riley and I had a meeting about her 5th grade science camp field trip. She's so excited - they're going camping for 5 days. We saw a short video about the ranch/school and got many of our questions answered.

We were happy to see so many parents turn out for our first PTA meeting of the year - oh, and Booster. Did I mention I'm also the Secretary of the Booster Club now?

Next week will be even busier. Sylvia has rehearsal every night this week, plus I have a parents advisory meeting at the Club, a Club fundraiser the next night, and the night after that, I have my orientation and reception for the Leadership program. I'm getting really excited about the Leadership program. Plus, I have a friend from the Club in my class!

Work is also getting busier. I've got three major projects, plus the everyday stuff.

I don't have much writing mojo right now, and while I'm trying to keep up with reading blogs, I'm afraid I'm not commenting very often. The blogosphere will just have to survive without my input for a little while.

Wow... you all are starting off the new school year with a Bang!

Good luck to all of you in each of your endeavors.

Hey! When you're busy, you're busy! The blogosphere will understand. ;)

Just remember to take a breather when you need it!

Slacker. Come ON, don't you have about three more hours in the day to read and comment on BLOGS? Sheesh! :) Mine went back today-life is good.

Danielle said...

I thought I was busy. Geesh!

I understand busy but surviving without your input? Say it isn't so!

Jen said...

This post made me nervous. I'm not looking forward to the "stuff" all starting up again. That science camp sounds absolutely amazing. Is that through school?

Hi! Thank you for passing by my blog and leaving a comment even when I can see that you've been so busy yourself.

My boys also had homework the first day back in school and PTA meetings went in full force already since one of our important fundraiser event is around the corner. Besides that, all the other activities...piano, etc...etc... And oh,!

So, I feel ya. Blogosphere will be here always waiting whenever you are ready. :-)

"Writing mojo." Life does grind it down, doesn't it.

And 2 weeks in, only, and the school stress and load here is huge. Trying to figure out how we manage 9 more months of this, knowing we're only at the beginning.

How do you do it? I'm going to have to take lessons in time management from you.
